Police capture fleeing robbery suspect

Baton Rouge police arrested a man accused of robbing two people Sunday morning, then leading police on a brief chase.

Police booked Gerald McDowell, 20, 4526 Hollywood St., Baton Rouge, into Parish Prison on counts of armed robbery, auto theft and resisting an officer.

One man told police he left his friend in a car in a parking lot to talk to someone at a nearby business when he saw several people surround his vehicle, the affidavit of probable cause says.

The man left in the car told police that one of the people at the car knocked on the window with a silver revolver while screaming at him to get out, the affidavit says. As the victim got out, the assailant hit him repeatedly with the revolver, then emptied the victim’s pockets, stealing $60 in cash, jewelry and a cellphone, as well as stealing the car.

The victims called police, who saw the stolen car, which was being driven by another person with the headlights off, in the 4000 block of Tuscarora Street, the affidavit says. The officer stood in the street, shining a flashlight at the car, when McDowell jumped from the front passenger side, leading officers on a short chase before they caught up to him.

It’s unclear at this point whether police have made any other arrests in this case.
